One Line Review: Very similar to Tollywood’s “Iru Mugan”, but quite a treat for the eyes.
Not every good sci-movie produced by Netlfix is its own creation. Project Power matches a lot of the whole concept of the 2016 Tollywood movie Iru Mugan starring Vikram.
Directors (Henry Joost, Ariel Schulman) did manage to make it crisp and a new concept.
“Netflix’s enjoyable “Project Power,” starring Jamie Foxx and Joseph Gordon-Levitt, is a comic book-like film with heightened action sequences that have an illustrated quality to them.”~ Johnny Oleksinski, New York Post.
There’s a new pill in the city which, when taken, gives a superpower, different to everyone, but only for 5 minutes. Some people develop allergic reactions to this pill, resulting in a number of deaths and permanent illnesses.
This results in a massive increase in crime rates in the city. So a former soldier pairs up with a cop to take down this pill syndrome from the city.
What’s to Like/DisLike?
Let’s talk about the very crucial thing in all the Sci-fi movies; VFX. I’m telling you, they spent a ton of money on it and it is terrific. The action sequences are marvelous and are a treat for the eyes.
VFX played a serious part in making this movie a success (Yes, it is!). From a screenplay and action sequence point of view, this movie is very much enjoyable.
The recording team used unique and compelling camera angles while shooting the movie.
The climax, which matches a lot with X-men movies, is really impressive and thrilling.
The actors did a very good job, especially the child actor, Dominique. She is very much entertaining in the whole movie. Her rapping skills would keep you hooked if nothing else!
The performances, the production quality, and screenwriting are quite good.
Overall, you can’t say that this is one outstanding piece of work, but you can definitely say that this is a very good time pass for you and your friends. Young people, like me and you (wink wink), are gonna enjoy this movie.
That’s it from my side guys, I hope you got what you are looking for in order to have a clear judgment on this movie. Be sure to check out my other reviews also.
